Re: Air Trajectory B/C

Hey everybody, great posts so far! QQ [in a piston design] do you think that the device will be measured for competition in the ready to fire position? (as in mass is ready to fall or be triggered)... or will it be measured with the mass detached? (Like how it is impounded). I would assume that the...

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

Hey TheBlowMaster! If you were referring to my earlier post, I just wanted to make clear that we were tiered because the string was outside of the 75 x 75 x 100 cube and it fell with the mass. Using string alone will not penalize you, just make sure the triggering mechanism doesn't add energy to th...

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

Does anyone have any good ideas for a trigger? I drop a weight from a string and after reading a post of someone doing something like that, I want to make sure that I won't get penalized for it.

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

Rule 3h. Electrical components are not allowed as part of the device or triggering device. Doesn't this include laser? I don't have the rules with me right now, but if you were to remove the laser from the device immediately before launching, would it count as "part of the device?" That's what I wa...

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

Do you guys think laser pointers are legal to use for aiming as long as they don't pose any threat to the eyes?
I think as long as they aren't attached to the device, you should be fine.

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

Did you try it in a different setting? In a small basement (but large enough for 8 meters), I think it was fairly consistent, barely shifting to the left nor right. But during competition, where the room was large and close to the entrance, the ball kept on turning to the left so maybe atmospheric ...

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

I just got back from running Air Trajectory at the Northland invite in the Kansas City area. Lots of stuff on my mind about Air Trajectory, so I better get it all down before I forget. 1. Air Trajectory is much tougher than Trajectory. Things were easier when I was around. 2. Consistency is key . E...
